“Late drama dashes Hurst’s hopes of Tiffs first victory”
The 22nd of September, remembered for the coronation of George the third, the birth of the Mormon religion and the death of the great performer Marcel Marceau. That date will also forever be etched as the birth of the Old Tiffinians 5th team. Performances that would eclipse Marceau took place, overseen by the watchful gaze of Captain Matt Hurst the brave boys battled back from a half time deficit to level just after the break Frankie Kalogirou forcing home from a beautiful weighted pass.
As Guildford stole back the lead, the heads did not drop, and the battling spirit soon came to the fore, as the 5ths levelled through Ben Jefferies nice finish, before a debut strike from Tom West look to have sealed a famous debut, one worthy of the great Tiffs tradition.
Alas the spirit gave way to the strength and the Tiffs struggled on, a late goal mouth scramble and a cute finish sank the good ship as the rain soaked the fields of Grist and the energy of the 5ths. But the 5th’s will back as for this is only the start.
